Choose the fish or shellfish that you wish to prepare and we will show you how to do it.
Arrive at the school for registration at 6.15am. After a short introduction to the workings of the market we take you on to the market to talk about the different species available (up to 130 - 150 on a really good day). We also cover quality assessment. During the visit you choose which fish that you would like to buy and we will help you make your purchase. Many people who attend this morning are unsure what fish that they would like to work with. We will make suggestions and suggest working with a species of fish that covers various techniques either flat fish (lemon sole, plaice etc) or round fish (including sea bass, sea bream, red mullet and monkfish) We only have time to work with one species per person, but you can buy whatever you would like during the visit. After the visit we return to the school kitchen for a light breakfast and then a 1 hour preparation session.
Anyone who wants to try new species of fish or learn some top tips on how to prepare it at home. We can also arrange private visits for small groups. If you want a more substantial fish breakfast (or even a glass of Bucks Fizz after the visit) we can arrange this at a competitive rate. Just email or contact us by 'phone to discuss the options.
Your prepared fish and an understanding of how Billingsgate market operates during trading hours.
As much as you like, although we will only have time to work on a single species of fish with you during the session. Just bring cash and a cool bag.
